Description 'McCormick Field was built into a hillside in Asheville in 1924, with all-wood grandstands: the regular stand behind the plate and the Negro stand out behind the left-field wall (it burned down in 1937). This is where Babe Ruth came down with “The Bellyache Heard ’Round the World” and was rumored to have died in 1925. The team playing in town had a few names, but was usually known as the Tourists for all the traffic rolling through on the way to the nearby Great Smoky Mountains.'text source: Charlie's email@example.com
Kristi Hedberg, Asheville Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement Primarily a portrait photographer, it is hard not to also capture the beauty I see daily in the world around me. Life is far too fleeting and busy to not pause to capture the moments around us that will all too soon be gone.
